How to Crochet the Net Filet Stitch

January 5, 2018

Today I wanted to share with you a quick photo tutorial of the Crochet Net Filet Stitch. It’s a very easy stitch with a simple 1 row repeat. This is the stitch I used for the Urban Chic Cocoon Sweater. It’s a great stitch for summer and spring patterns because of the open and airy design. I’d love to make a swim suit cover or a summer cowl with this stitch!

Pattern Notes & Stitches to Know
ch – chain
dc – double crochet

ch 4 at the beginning of each row counts as dc + ch 1


Ch any odd number (for this swatch I chained 25)

Row 1: dc in 5th ch from the hook (counts as dc + ch 1), *ch 1, skip one stitch, dc in next* repeat from * to * across

Row 2: ch 4 (counts as dc + ch 1), turn, dc in first ch 1 space *ch 1, dc in next ch 1 space* repeat from * to * across, dc in ch 4 space from previous round

Repeat row 2 for pattern

  1. Hi, I’m ready to start your urban chic cocoon. I am 4 feet 10 inches
    Will I need to make this shorter. I want it to be just below My butt? Would love your input. I love this pattern

    1. Hi! I’m 5’0″ so it won’t be much longer on you. You can take out rows to make it shorter.

  2. Thanks for taking the time to reply. I need to get my yarn. Do you think cotton yarn would be a good choice, like hobby lobby I love this cotton

    1. Yes, it would work! It might make the gauge larger because that’s a category 4 yarn and I used a category 3 🙂

      1. Hi! This is just a stitch tutorial, not a full pattern 🙂 For the urban Chic Cocoon Sweater you could add 10 to the starting ch
